The election took place after an extended eight-week official campaign period. It was the first double dissolution since the 1987 election.
http://www.electionsausagesizzle.com.au tracks the location of sausage sizzles, cake stalls, and other fundraising activities on election day. The underlying objective is to celebrate our democracy, encourage participation in the democratic process and offer support for community groups and volunteers that run sausage sizzles and stalls on election day, as it is an important means of fundraising for them.
